Prescription drug abuse grew to cocaine and heroin use
My son has been taking opiates for at least 3 years for chronic pain from Mitochondrial Myopathy. He has used morphine, oxycotin, and oxycodone over the years in very high doses and recently has started to crush the pills and snort or inject. His psychiatrist and pain doctor stopped seeing him about 6 months ago so he turned to the street to purchase oxycodone and more recently heroin and cocaine.
We have tried to get him into rehab but all of the programs we have found require complete abstinence which won’t work in this case due to the severe pain from the Mitochondrial Myopathy. To make things worse, my son shifts between seeking help and denying he has a problem. What can be done to get his life on track before he dies?
